Pineapple Roses

Yesterday I finished the binding on the little pineapple quilt.  These ARE traditional pineapple blocks, but instead of the traditional division of light and dark fabrics, I mixed scraps of pink, orange, and yellow randomly.
Green corner triangles enhanced the flower effect.  The blocks are 5 1/2" finished and were pieced on paper foundations (I don't think I would like to make pineapple blocks any other way!)  This quilt is hand quilted with pink quilting thread.  I quilted a stenciled pattern in each block and quilted the border with fans.
Last, but not least, Baby has selected this area of the store for her "nap place of the week".  We have to reach over and step around.
